Each year since 1992, according to the Centennial Flame Research Award Act, the House of Commons’ Standing Committee on Human Resources, Skills and Social Development and the Status of Persons with Disabilities grants the Centennial Flame Research Award. This Award is offered to a person with a disability to enable him or her to conduct research and prepare a report on the contribution of one or more Canadians with disabilities to the public life of Canada or the activities of Parliament.
The process for submitting an application to the Centennial Flame Research Award is now over. The Committee would like to thank everyone who applied. The Committee is proud to announce that the recipient of the 2013 Centennial Flame Research Award is Ms. Sara Carleton. Ms. Carleton’s research will focus Clara Hugues and how she has affected the way Canadians think about mental health disorders.
For all questions about the Centennial Flame Research Award, please contact the Clerk of the Committee at 613-996-1542 or by email at HUMA@parl.gc.ca.
